• 4 chicken breast filets (or portions of turkey breast)
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 slices ham
  • 4 slices of mild cheese, such as Dutch or Swiss
  • Plain flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Oil


  1. Preheat an oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Using a wooden meat hammer, or rolling pin, pound the chicken breasts to about ½ cm (¼ inch) thick.
  3. Lay out the chicken breasts and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Top each with a slice of cheese and a slice of ham. Roll the chicken up tightly.
  4. Dredge the rolls in flour, then egg and then in the bread crumbs, coating them well. Use toothpicks to hold them together if needed.
  5. Shallow fry to seal, then place in a baking pan, seam side down and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes.
